About Working Out Loud
Working Out Loud is a way to build relationships that help you achieve a goal, develop a skill, or explore a new topic. Instead of networking to get something, you invest in relationships by making contributions over time, including your work and experiences that you make visible.
Working Out Loud Circles, the peer support groups, help you experience the benefits for yourself.
When you Work Out Loud, your contributions over time build trust and deepen a sense of relatedness, increasing the chances for cooperation and collaboration. You're more effective because you have access to more people, knowledge, and opportunities that can help you. You feel better too, because your bigger network of meaningful relationships give you a greater sense of control, competence, and connection.
All of that leads to more motivation for individuals, and to more agility, innovation, and collaboration for an organization.
After three decades of working in big companies, I figured there had to be a better way to realize more of our individual & collective potential in the workplace. I developed Working Out Loud so you can experience that better way.
Today I help organizations create more collaborative cultures—and help individuals access a better career and life—by spreading the practice of Working Out Loud.
Here are some of the companies where WOL is spreading.
